Lapka, an iPhone accessory and app combo which tests organic food as well as detecting environmental factors such as radiation, humidity, and electromagnetism, is set to ship before the end of the year.
Lapka uses a metal probe to check raw food and drinking water for excessive quantities of nitrates, a tell-tale sign of the use of synthetic fertilizers. The other blocks monitor the ambient environment, with the app providing a database of comfort settings and a suite of visualization tools, allowing users to pick precise spots away from potentially harmful elements.
If you are gullible enough to buy this, maybe you deserve to be out $220. There is nothing special about organic food. Most organic food is labeled. The fear over nitrates suggested in this piece is over-exaggerated. There is no justifiable harm identified from nitrates. Just don’t eat processed and cured food if you are concerned. You don’t need a probe to determine that.
Apparently it will work as a radon detector and help you judge when a nuclear accident has taken place. Or something. It is “professionally precise“, counts and visualizes every particle. (WHAT?)
I’m just wondering… will it pick up the cell phone signal on your phone? How about the wifi? If you are freaked out over EMF signals, you should be living in a cave somewhere away from civilization which is AWASH in radiation of some sort or another. Frankly, this device is suited for only very irrational and completely paranoid people.
